Frozen Pineapple Margarita

I thought it would be nice to put a spin on a margarita. Well, that’s partly true. I really had this poor, sad, forgotten pineapple just sitting all alone on my counter (we can address my produce addiction another time). Now, I’m not telling you to use a rotten pineapple, but if it’s just a bit too ripe, cut it up into cubes, lay them out on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper and throw them in the freezer until frozen. From there you can use some to whip up this drink then put the rest in a zipper bag and back into the freezer for future margaritas or smoothies. Cheers!

Frozen Pineapple Margarita

Unknown-1

about 9 ice cubes
2 C. frozen cut pineapple
1 C. orange juice

1 can organic coconut milk
1  1/4 cup (depending on the sweetness of your pineapple)

2 lemons, juiced

1 lime, juiced
zest of one lime
turbinado sugar for serving

lime wedge for serving

Put all ingredients into the blender. Blend on high speed for about one minute. If you’d like to rim the glasses with the turbinado, fill one shallow dish with lime juice and water and one with some sugar in it. Dip the glass into the lime water. Let the excess drip off, then dip into the sugar. Pour the margarita into chilled margarita glasses and garnish with a wedge of lime.

Serves about 4 margaritas.

So you’ve decided to go raw; now what?

You would think that doing all the studying about eating healthy, getting inspired and finally making this momentous decision would be good enough!

But raw food doesn’t grow on trees….I mean…it does, actually…but it isn’t exactly readily available everywhere you go like, say, junk food is.

I think if you are going to be successful at eating raw, you need a plan. It’s not just about what you aren’t going to eat, but you need to know what you are going to eat.

Even if it’s just planning a smoothie for breakfast, salad for lunch, and nut-milk for dinner, that’s a start. You have to learn the best places in your area to buy the various ingredients you’ll need. You have to get in the habit of buying basic raw ingredients to create easy raw recipes on the fly.

But won’t you be hungry eating just salads and smoothies?
